About Us
Journey Of Egab

Egab was created in late 2020 out of the belief that there is undiscovered talent that finds it difficult to access reputable regional and international news organisations. Today’s news coverage is focused on what's happening in big cities, ignoring interesting stories in lesser-known areas. although the world we live in is full of problems, it is also full of solutions. There are people responding to every problem we face but most of the time we do not hear about them in the news, which leads to a skewed negative and regional specific portrayal of our world. Therefore, more balanced reporting is needed to generate a truer reflection of our world. Today we have supported local journalists across 32 countries to get published in top media outlets. Our work has been recognised by several awards but our biggest trophy is helping you - local journalists and media outlets - tell inspiring stories for global audiences.
Why Egab?
Egab is the best solution
Access If you are a journalist, Egab enables you to reach a large number of news organisations from your hometown. If you are a news editor, Egab helps you access a large pool of contributors and stories from all over the Middle East and Africa.
Quality Egab ensures the quality of stories commissioned through it. Our journalists receive guidance and mentoring from start to finish, ensuring the delivery of high-quality, engaging pieces.
Diversity Egab enables media outlets to truly meet their diversity and inclusion goals and ensure the various communities across the Middle East and Africa have their fair share of representation.
Money We also ensure our journalists are fairly paid for their work by offering our advice on what is a good rate for the stories they pitch. We also save media outlets money as they don’t have to fly in reporters or pay for accommodation and/or fixers, since our journalists are locals.
